Yakuza Zero

PS3, PS4

EDGE - - SUBSCRIBE - Pub­lisher/ de­vel­oper Sega (Yakuza Stu­dio) For­mat PS3, PS4 Ori­gin Ja­pan Re­lease Out now (JP), TBA

We’re hop­ing for, rather than ex­pect­ing, a west­ern re­lease for Sega’s ’80s-era pre­quel, which shows a young Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Ma­jima try­ing to make their for­tune in Tokyo’s seedy un­der­belly. Com­bat has been ex­panded, with both pro­tag­o­nists able to swap be­tween three fight­ing styles, while asides in­clude rhythm-ac­tion disco danc­ing, cabaret man­age­ment and playable

Out­Run and Space Har­rier cab­i­nets. Time with the Ja­panese demo of­fers a teas­ing glimpse of some smart re­fine­ments, plus a se­ries of im­pen­e­tra­ble cutscenes. Sega’s re­cent moves sug­gest a lo­cal­i­sa­tion is un­likely, but then so was one for Yakuza 5.
